by Lisa Hinton-Valdrighi

Dion Gonzales scored three touchdowns and converted two to lead Colonial Beach in a 66-36 rout of Lancaster in a Northern Neck District varsity football game last Friday.

+ A | - A

The loss as much as guaranteed Lancaster will travel in the first round game in the Eastern Section, Division 1 playoffs. If the Devils had won, it would have helped their chances of securing a home berth. Lancaster is now 4-5 overall and 1-3 heading into its final regular season game tomorrow night (November 2) at home against Northumberland (1-8, 0-4).

After trading touchdowns in the opening minutes, Colonial Beach scored three more first-quarter TDs to go up 30-14. The Drifters (5-4, 2-2) got scoring from five different players in the first half for a 44-22 lead at the break.

Shamark Shanks opened the scoring for homestanding Colonial Beach with a 7-yard run, but got a quick answer from Lancaster when Kedrick Lee hit Taj Smith on an 18-yard scoring play.

The Drifters’ Nick Graves scored on a 28-yard carry and Carter Foster ran for a 3-yard TD to put Colonial Beach in front 22-8 when Lee and Ricky Gibson combined for a 70-yard pass play for a score.

Carlos Bermudez capped the scoring in a defense-less first quarter with a 40-yard run that lifted the Drifters, 30-14.

Gonzales scored on two 3-yard carries in the second and again on a 13-yard run in the third.

Lee had a hand in all of Lancaster’s TDs except for a 1-yard carry by Tre’Vaughan Davis in the fourth quarter.

Lee completed 13 of 22 passes for 361 yards and three touchdowns. He also rushed for a one-yard TD. Lee hit Brian Moody on a 76-yard scoring pass in the third quarter. Moody had four receptions for 114 yards, while Gibson caught six passes for 153 yards and a TD.

Davis caught three for 62 yards and led the LHS rushers with 12 carries for 96 yards and a score.
